The Sociology course was interesting, but a call from a particular individual quickly garnered my attention.

The call came in while the professor was talking. Respectfully, I declined the call and continued to pay attention. Then, he called back, which let me know it had to be serious. I had known the caller for quite awhile so a back-to-back call had to be taken seriously. I stood, walked out of class and took the call.

As I answer the phone with a simple “Hello,” his response was a classic “Where are you?” I respond, “In Nashville in class trying to better myself.” His next words blew my mind — “Get on a plane and meet me in Chicago for dinner tonight! I’ve just been traded.” In the four years of knowing him, playing one season at Vanderbilt together and training for the combine in Atlanta, I had never heard him so excited.
